Photographer + Photo Booth = ???

Can I tell you we’re exhausted?
We are.

In the last 4 days, we served hundreds of people during our Bistro Grand Opening. It was fun; it was also (at times) a little crazy. Thanks for your enthusiasm and patience.

Photos below are from the preview on Thursday night. And we love them. But if you’re in a photo and you’re horrified (or in the witness protection program), send a quick email to info@restaurantecho.com and we’ll take it down.

Many thanks to the man behind the lens, Jeff Kowal, and the photo booth operator, Jason from FairyTale Photo Booth. Turns out there are a few constants in photo booths – kissin’ and givin’ raspberries.

Patio Popsicles: Watermelon-Mint

fresh mint, finely chopped

Combine water, sugar and watermelon juice in sauce pot and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely. Puree with half and half.
